But plants that can withstand a position with sun all day long: you have to choose them carefully. Especially if the plant is in a pot, the root system can become very hot in the sun. Few garden plants can withstand this. We list the three most beautiful and versatile options here.
The Japanese Maple
The beautiful Japanese Maple is known for its special leaf shape and impressive colours. Several colors are available, with the red being by far the most commonly seen. These red varieties turn a shade darker red in the fall and are truly a feast for the eyes! And the great thing about this exotic-looking tree is that it grows native to our climate.
There are many varieties of the Japanese Maple available. So there is always one that is suitable for your garden, or even balcony. There are species that you can keep as a shrub, and species that grow up to 10 meters high! Most varieties will do just fine in full sun. In fact, a Japanese Maple needs a lot of sunlight to maintain its red colors. If the plant gets too little sun, the colors will fade.
